Dell'Oro: WDM Market to Hit $13 Billion in 2017

The total worldwide wavelength division multiplexer (WDM) market revenue is forecast to grow at a ten percent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years, reaching $13 billion in 2017, according to a newly released Optical Transport forecast report by Dell'Oro Group.

"Forty and 100 Gigabit is really where the growth is going forward," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport Market Research at Dell'Oro Group.  "Demand for 40 and 100 Gbps WDM wavelengths will drive the optical market's growth for the next five-years.  We are finding that the demand for 100 Gbps wavelengths is especially strong as service providers continue to expand their network capacity.  We currently predict 100 Gbps wavelength shipments to grow at a 75 percent CAGR over the next five years, and that by 2017 approximately 60 percent of the WDM capacity shipments will be with 100 Gbps wavelengths," added Yu.
